Daiwa's Nylon LRB's

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering what people's experiences were with the nylon line roller bearings that Daiwa is using in some of their newer saltwater spinning reels. These are sleeves I assume not 'bearings'. I know there is a post about changing out the nylon bearings in the Saltist to roller bearings. The nylon sleeves are used in the Saltist, Emblem ProA and the Emblem Shot and probably some others. The ones used in the Saltist are not the same as the ones used in Emblems. The parts breakouit shows 1 for the Saltist and 2 for the Emblems with different numbers so they are not identical. Do these things work or are the a major problem? Do they require lubrication, if so what do they recommend?

The ones in my Pro A worked ok last season....light use though.

 

I give the assembly a shot of Shimano reel oil after every outing.

 

Many of the guys in the Ma Forum who use the Saltist in the Canal, have changed the plastic out for a real bearing with good results.

I bought an Emblem Pro A and decided to take a look at the RB's. The screw is definitely held in with some kind of glue, it's red. I used a Phillips head screwdriver that fit real tight. Even after breaking it loose the screw came out hard. There are two 'bearings' one on either side of the line roller.

They are a major problem and constantly seize up, requiring dis-assembly cleaning and lubrication with really light oil. They have no place in the line roller assembly. Even when seemingly operating, they will not turn when there is not enough tension on them such as on retrieve of lighter lures.
